Profile

Mod is a studio that specialises in realtime and virtual production. That means we produce creative storytelling and experience across platforms, including Extended Reality (XR) and games, and we use realtime technologies behind the scenes for film & TV. Mod was founded in 2010 by Michela Ledwidge and Mish Sparks and has worked with many organisations

Our name is inspired by the culture of modifying or 'modding' video games - where game developers support audiences to actively engage with their titles to create unique experiences.

We are the developers of Rack&Pin, a production management software system used in-house and licensed to third parties.

Testimonials

"...the installation ran flawlessly. Everyone who saw the show was knocked out."
Richard Gillespie
eMerge Gallery Director - James Cook University, Australia

"ACO VIRTUAL was very successful for us – we had over 2000 people through during the installation period which we have never achieved before. One of our volunteers particularly enjoyed watching babies and very small children interact with the installation – she said they were mesmerised, turning their heads to see each musician. It also attracted people who had never been to the Artspace before."
Susan Rogers
Senior Arts & Cultural Officer - Gatakers Artspace

"Staging ACO Virtual generated a buzz of word of mouth that I think translated to a larger audience for ACO2's live concert than we would have been able to achieve without it."
Stephen Champion
Centre Manager, Bathurst Entertainment Centre
